Journey to Inner Freedom: A Journaling Experience Retreat

Event Dates and Times

2/22/2018 - 3/5/2018
Womanspace in Rockford
Journey to Inner Freedom: A Journaling Experience
in Writing from the Quiet Center
Faye Schwelitz, Ph.D. in the William Reif Gallery
March 9–11 (RT17-22)
The name, JOURNEY TO INNER FREEDOM, reflects the goal of writing from the
quiet center: to uncover within ourselves an inner freedom, one we did not know
we possess. As we discover the hidden resources deep within us, we also find ways
to free ourselves of the chains of past destructive behaviors and to learn from the
“mistakes” of life. We begin to see that all the material of our life is a rich, exciting
learning ground and fertile soil for new, creative works. As this occurs we find ourselves
more and more inwardly free and truly ourselves. By writing from the quiet center we
are able to follow our inner guidance and do the deep inner work our lives require. This workshop will use the journal method of Ira Progoff described in his book, At a Journal Workshop. Bring a sack lunch on Saturday!
